Research Outcomes

The results of the iSCI Walking Balance study have led to various interesting findings that have been presented in various conferences and peer-reviewed journals. The data is still being analyzed to address many more questions related to walking balance strategies among individuals with iSCI. Here is a glimpse of our results so far:
